Moving to Area in July and Looking for RPG Group

A hundred years ago, the not-quite-coastal village of Kamiki, near the northern mountains in Phoenix Clan, was besieged by a horrible, powerful monster from the Shadowlands. It demanded regular human sacrifices, and if it didn't get them, it sent its minions to do unspeakable things to the population. Luckily, Imperial troops (which is to say, samurai from many different clans) discovered the problem and defeated the monster; every year since, on the anniversary of its death, Kamiki holds a festival in honor of the heroes that saved it. That is where the game begins.

I just lost the post I wrote because the forums gave me an error message. I'll try again after this post, but if you want to hit me with your e-mail, that might be the way to go.

I've already glanced at the basic concept of the system and could always look more into it on my on so no worries there. I'd like to hear more about the campaign you are looking to run I suppose. It also sounds like the L5R system isn't completely set in stone at the point since you mentioned other game systems in your initial reply. What else are you considering? As mentioned before I'm very flexible with all this and really only care if fun is being had by all and am okay with a wide range of genres. I guess I'd also be interested in hearing more about the group. What's the average age of the players? How long have ya'll been playing together? Would this be a new campaign or would you be looking for someone to join partway through? Etc.

Will it be easier to communicate via email if you are going to be going into specifics about your campaign idea? I have no preference.

You're welcome, and thanks for getting back to me so quickly. When you say you're interested in hearing more about the details of L5R, are you talking about the game system, or about the idea I'd want to pitch? Or both, I guess?

Thanks for the reply! I've never heard of Legend of the Five Rings so I looked it up. I'm definitely more comfortable with roleplaying with the DnD systems since I've been exposed to that world setting most all my life, but I'd be interested in hearing more of the details about L5R or whatever else ya'll are thinking of. Strangely enough, I enjoy learning new games and rules so new systems don't bother me. I'd just have to try to wrap my head around roleplaying a samurai or something I guess. The most important thing for me is how the group works together. Being a fairly laid back fellow myself, I've never been a big fan of hardcore min-maxing with any game or constant rule debating or hyper competitiveness haha.

A group of three over here is looking for new players. I'll probably be the GM; I'm looking to run a Legend of the Five Rings game, but I have a couple of ideas for different game systems. Twice a month is what we're used to, so that works out pretty well. If you're interested, message me or respond, and I can hit you with some details.
